We all want to find more time to read in our busy schedule, but there’s just something about this activity that makes people super-sleepy. If you fall under this category, here are a couple of tricks that can help you stay awake.
If you usually read before going to bed, it’s not unusual that you would have a hard time staying up. You’re already exhausted from everything that went on during the day, so think about finding time for your favorite book at a different hour.
It’s difficult to fall asleep when you have something else but the book keeping you distracted. How about having a snack or drinking a nice cup of tea while you’re cozying up with your favorite novel?
If you usually get sleepy while you’re reading because your eyes are getting too tired, audiobooks are a good way to go. You may even consider walking or doing chores during this activity, unless you have trouble concentrating this way.
